Hello everyone,

Today we made some major changes to vdsworld and it's forums. The forums particularly have been updated to the latest version of phpbb. To accomplish this upgrade we had to remove almost all of the extra features which were added into the forum. Below are some of the features which will no longer work with the forum:

- Chatbox: you can no longer chat through the forum
- [vds]: the vds tag will no longer work within posts

The changes were required in order to make sure all future updates to the forum can be made hassle-free. The forum that was previously installed was causing the entire server to crash and the forum was severly outdated due to the inability to update it - thus leaving major security holes open.

We do understand that some may not like the changes that have occurred however they were necessary in order for this site to continue functioning.

Please also note that some portions of the site were also removed due to incompatibility with the new forum and/or were outdated resources such as:

- Developer Forum
- vds-l Archive
- Ultraboard Archive


Special thanks to Vic for making these changes for us Smile

shame about the chatbox, it did not get a lot of use but it was fun when it was used

shame about the [vds] tag, it really made the code easier to read
